Huddersfield Rental Properties and Children

Huddersfield Rental Properties and Children
We all know the most important factors are security and stability in the home.  Interestingly the average length of tenure in private rental homes has risen in the last 5 years from 3.7 years, to 4 years.

Looking specifically at HD2 compared to the National figures, of the 2,243 private rental homes in Huddersfield, 748 of these have dependent children in them (or 33.3%), which is (although expected) below the National average of 37.4%.

So, as landlords are already meeting tenants' wants and needs when it comes to the length of tenancy, I find it strange some politicians are calling for fixed term 3 and 5 year tenancies. Such heavy handed regulation could stop landlords renting their property out in the first place, cutting off the supply of much needed rental property
